How long should I maintain and store records, employment applications/documents used during the hiring process?

As soon as allowable under state, federal or University policy, a document in either electronic or paper format containing a SSN where the need for the information is no longer relevant, should be securely destroyed as per University policy. All questions pertaining to the University's Records Retention/Destruction Schedule should be directed to Gary R. Dunn, University Records Officer, 618 650-3982/
